As much as things change some things stay the same


Can’t get the story of 17 year old Trayvon Martin out of my head.

Shot dead while walking back to his home from a corner store after buying lollies and a can of drink.

Local neighborhood watch volunteer, who was armed, shot and killed him telling police he looked suspicious.

That was almost a month ago and no charges have been laid sparking massive outcry.

By now you may have guessed: Trayvon was black – the neighborhood watch man white.

Wonder what would’ve happened if it had been the other way.

A black man may be in the White House but somethings haven’t changed.

Urge you to read more:

    I can only hope that it will spur a few to change their attitude toward such terrible things that happen because people are ignorant and refuse to stand up for others..Keeping this in the press is the only thing that might make the police do something..
